Elected positions in Troop 24 are Senior Patrol Leader, Two Assistant Senior Patrol Leaders and Patrol Leaders elected at-large (number varies according to number of scouts in the Troop). Elections will be held in May and December of each year. All votes in Troop elections are cast by secret ballot with the winner being that individual with the majority of votes. In the event of a tie, a run-off will be held that same evening to determine the winner.

The Senior Patrol Leader then appoints his Staff, with the approval of the Scoutmaster, consisting of Troop Guides, Scribe, Quartermaster, Historian, Librarian and Instructors.

Patrol Leader will be assigned a patrol of scouts to lead. He then appoints his Staff, with Scoutmaster approval, consisting of Assistant Patrol Leader, Scribe.

All Troop Junior Leader positions, both those that are elected and those that are appointed, run for a one-half year term starting in May and again in December. There is no practical limit to the number of times a Scout may be elected to or hold a particular position, however, the Scoutmaster may determine who may run based on the need to distribute leadership opportunities to other scouts.

In order to be considered for elected positions a scout must be at least first-class rank and have active status in the troop. Scouts should review job descriptions before running for office.
